Thoughts and Reflections

How would you spend 86,400 a day?

Posted by WebMaster on October 7, 2011 at 3:55 PM

Imagine that you had won thefollowing prize in a contest:  Each morning your bank would deposit$86,400.00 in your private account for your use.

However, this prize has rules, just asany game has certain rules.

The first set of rules would be:

Everything that you didn't spend during each day would be taken away from you. You may not simply transfer money into some other account. You may only spend it.Each morning upon awakening, thebank opens your account with another $86,400.00 for that day.

The second set of rules:

     The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can say, it’s over, the game is over!  It can close the account and you will not receive a new one. What would you personally do?

You would buy anything andeverything you wanted right?  Not only for yourself, but for all peopleyou love, right?  Even for people you don't know, because you couldn’tpossibly spend it all on yourself, right?

You would try to spend every cent,and use it all, right?


Each of us is in possession of sucha magical bank. We just can't seem to see it. The MAGICAL BANK is TIME!

Each morning we awaken to receive86,400 seconds as a gift of life, and when we go to sleep at night, anyremaining time is NOT credited to us.

What we haven't lived up that day isforever lost.

Yesterday is forever gone.

Each morning the account isrefilled, but the bank can dissolve your

Account at any time....WITHOUTWARNING.

SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400seconds?

Those seconds are worth so much morethan the same amount in dollars.

Think about that, and always thinkof this:

Enjoy every second of your life,because time races by so much quicker than you think.

So take care of yourself, be Happy,Love Deeply and enjoy life!

Here's wishing you a wonderful andbeautiful day.

Start spending!!
